Hi y'all!

This will be my second year as convention staff, and I was just recently asked to be the new lead medical staff. Does anyone have any advice for this? It's a fairly small convention but I'd really like to do my best but don't have much experience.

Medical staff? I hope you have medical training of some kind. Not only are there safety issues, but there are liability issues for both you AND the convention.

You may want to seek out Operation Hammond for advice and/or assistance. They take care of any first aid needs (and some other things) at a bunch of conventions...primarily in the northeast.

I talked with the founder of Operation Hammond about a year ago in this episode of AnimeCons TV:
